Bad Breath. I’ve got it. You are welcome for sharing.
Why the bad breath on this sugar detox? Low carbs.
What I have read is the bad breath is caused by cutting out too many carbs and having your body in ketosis.
This sugar detox has involved cutting out all refined carbs and most fruits. Only green bananas, grapefruit and green apples are allowed. One per day.
As I mentioned, I picked this particular program because there were three levels of the program. Level 1 is the least restrictive.
Level 1 does allow grains. All the approved grains are wheat and gluten-free grains.
In addition to following the plan, I have been eating 1/2 cup of quinoa each day. Which apparently isn’t enough carbs to keep the bad breath away.
Peeps. I am on this for 30 days. I can not live with this taste in my mouth for the next 25. Period.
New plan? Adding more servings of the approved fruits. And if that doesn’t work, I’m upping my grain serving from 1/2 cup to 1 cup.
Will eating both a green apple and a grapefruit and maybe even a green banana in one day kill me?
I think not.
But this bad breath just might.
